I have been trying to configure a server 2016 essentials on a Dell Powerflex T130. I never did this before and there was a 2008 R2 FE server before but it crashed. However, the workstations/clients are still able to sign on even though there is no server– which I don’t understand.
I installed the OS on the T130 and ADCS was installed already when I went to Add Roles and Services. I then added DNS, installed, and configured DNS and the same for DHCP. NIC1 has an address of 192.168.0.254 and NIC2 192.168.0.253 which is the same addressing scheme of the previous server(192.168.0.1). If I do an IP scan with a tool and all the addresses of the devices we use show up as well as the new server addresses. I add me as a user and my computer name. When I go to the network adapters, both show the domain(STBNC.local) on thier icons.
I then go to the client(STB6) and put in http:\STBNC.localconnect but I get the msg There are currently no logon servers available to service the logon request. I also get the msg when I try to sign on as other user on the client. I was thinking maybe the controller/server wasn’t promoted but I’m not sure how to tell.
So if there is anything else needed, I’m not sure what it is but if you would help it would be appreciated.
